Expletives are necessary though because this past Saturday, THE ENTIRE CITY OF WASHINGTON descended upon Adams Morgan for the Crafty Bastards outdoor arts and crafts fair hosted by The City Paper (the crowds making it Svetlana’s #1 nightmare claustrophobia event of the year, but the BYT photo staff LOVES IT MORE AND MORE every year). If you didn’t realize this, it is important to know that, DC area aside, Crafty Bastards are a major destination on the Arts and Crafts circuit. These guys travel the country from fair to fair to hawk their goods, and it shows, I think those in attendance saw some really spectacular goods.

Some highlights of things and people present included:
